Scott finds Williams' replacement in caddie Kerr


After a successful audition, Adam Scott announced on Monday he’s hired Mike Kerr to replace Steve Williams as his caddie.

Kerr worked for Scott earlier this month at the Australian PGA and Australian Open where the duo finished tied for second and fifth, respectively.

“I'm delighted that Mike has accepted my offer and I am confident that he will be a valuable member of my team for 2015 and beyond,” Scott said in a statement.

Scott and Williams split in September and the Australian had been auditioning different caddies, including David Clark, to begin the 2014-15 PGA Tour season.

Kerr, a native of Zimbabwe, has caddied on both the PGA and European tours, and has worked for Ernie Els, Lee Westwood and, most recently, Thorbjorn Olesen.
